Madison High School (MHS) is located in the in the medium sized town of Madison, SD. Like most medium sized towns, there is only one high school. Personally, I liked this about MHS. It meant that each class wasn't too small, but that it wasn't too big either. There are just enough people so that everyone knows each other and are there for you when you need help. The staff that works here makes this school great. We have many different teachers who all teach something a little different. Based on what classes you sign up for and take, you are able to create a bond with the teachers whose classes you have taken. These teachers will always be there to help if you have a question or problem; even if it doesn't have to deal with their class or school. I'm glad to have gone to MHS and will always be a proud bulldog!

Great teachers, who care about you and your education! I am really glad that I went there!! The teachers are willing to work one on one with you to help you out. Also, the food is great and the staff are all really nice. Thankful to have had my education at such a nice school.
The teachers are very helpful and there are many classes to choose from based on your interests. The arts are wonderful however they lack in funding. I have really enjoyed participating in Band, Choir, and Theatre at Madison High School. The sports teams are also very good however having parents as coaches can cause complications. Overall, I loved attending this school.
